Since May 2019, Le Wagon in Germany has been certified as vocational training by the Bundesagentur für Arbeit (or Job Center). This means that anyone who is registered in Germany and is unemployed (or soon to be) is eligible to receive a Bildungsgutschein (education voucher) and learn to code on our course, entirely financed by the German government. Ever since, we have trained 80 people in Berlin and are planning on accepting more candidates for our next bootcacmps in Berlin and Munich. Make sure to apply before places run out.

But how different is it doing the course with a Bildungsgutschein than someone who funded it themselves? In this interview, we'll take a closer look at two of our alumni who did the course using the Bildungsgutschein!

BCG to bootcamp - always chasing the learning zone

My philosophy is to always be learning by putting myself in new, scary situations. I think this initially led me to jump from mechanical engineering to the business world at Boston Consulting Group. It certainly played a part in me deciding to learn to code at Le Wagon and take on the role of tech lead and co-founder at Stotles. It has been a wild ride, and the only thing I know for sure is that the ride is just getting started.
